for the secretary of defense, panetta. now we are getting a better idea of which other officials might ten down and who might replace them. now the news from washington, dc. a lot chatter. what do we know? >> on the secretary of state front we know as confirmed by the state department spokeswoman, secretary of state, hillary clinton intends to lobby. u.n. ambassador susan rice is said to be a top question but there are questions whether the public role in the wake of the deadly benghazi attacks would impact her chance and senator john kerry who chairs the senate committee on foreign relations is considered a contender and although that would leave an open senate seat for the democrats, that may not be a dealbreaker. >> in their favor this election, they had elbow room by the number of seats they won and many thought they wouldn't win, have that two-vote majority so maybe the president is willing to take a chance. >>guest: last time it was left open by the death of senator kennedy it went to a republican who was defied on tuesday. over two term presidencies over world war ii it is rare if any ca
. >> blackmailable position. that's the key. now the defense secretary leon panetta is speaking out on all of this. >> that's right. is he traveling with reporters to australia. right now and on that flight he issued the first statement about the scandal. he said, quote: first, obviously, it was a very sad situation to have a distinguished career like that end in this manner. and my heart, obviously, goes out to him and his family. but i think he took the right step and i think it's important you're director with the cia with all the challenges that face you in that position that personal integrity comes first and foremost. panetta added as a former member of congress he thought that they needed to look into why the intelligence committees have not been given more oversight over these issues related to the cia right now. >> shepard: jennifer griffin at the pentagon tonight. thanks. some top members of congress are now saying investigators should have told them about the petraeus scandal and told them a long time ago. now they are demanding to know why the feds cut them out of the loop. that impor
received reaction from the secretary of defense leon panetta about general petraeus resignation. what can you tell us about that? >> he was en route to reporters and said it was a sad situation to have a established career end in this manner. my heart obviously goes out to hip and his family. but i think he took the right step and i think it's important when you are director of the c.i.a. with all the channels that face you in that position. >> he was then asked as a former member of congress how he felt about congress not being informed about the f.b.i. investigation. to which he said, "that is another issue i think we ought to look at, because as a former director of the c.i.a., working closely with the intelligence committees you know i believe there is a responsibility to make sure that the intelligence committee are informed of issues that could effect the security of those intelligence operations. >> thank you. in a city where keeping secrets is next to impossible many national leaders had no idea of the petraeus affair until shortly before you heard about it. >> catherine herridge
positions were just that. leon panetta calling for ethics training for military officers. >> that's right. in a memo september to the joint chiefs of staff is asking them to brain storm on ways to keep officers out of trouble. the kind of trouble that has tarnished the military's reputation for integrity and character. the memo was the product of internal pentagon discussions that began before petraeus announced he was resigning. the reason scandals that ensnared petraeus and john allen have only added to the urgency of this review. at the same time, panetta said he still retains full confidence in general john allen, that while his promotion to become supreme allied commander of europe has been put on hold while the d.o.d. inspector general investigates hundreds of allegedly provocative e-mails that he exchanged with jill kelly. >> what i don't want to do is to try to characterize those communications because i think -- i don't want to do anything that would impact on their ability to conduct an objective review of what was contained in those e-mails. >> this type of ig investigation us
term. secretary of defense leon panetta put out a statement about this statement, saying that while the matter is under investigation, and before the facts are determined, general allan will remain as commander. "his leadership has been instrumental in the significant progress that has been made in bringing greater security to the afghan people and making sure that afghanistan never becomes a safe haven again for terrorists. he is entitled to due process in this matter." that was the statement from leon panetta about general allan. also in the news, the chairwoman of the senate intelligence committee said yesterday that she would put out a subpoena for the general's testimony, if need be. she said she would go as far as to order a vote on the floor of the senate if the administration does not cooperate. part of the hearings that the intelligence -- intelligence committee will be holding later this week. the house foreign affairs committee also has a hearing, although the intelligence proceeding hearings will be closed. this is a look at who is testifying this morning from "the washi
's exhausted, understandably so. leon panetta who come phaout commutes from washington to california he wants out. he's over 70 and wants to row tire. timothy geithner the treasury secretary wanted out a while ago and was pressed to say. i would think in the case of panetta and clinton that republicans will be unhappy to see them go because they are pretty popular up on capitol hill, a lot of respect for both of them. obviously hillary clinton with the libya situation there is some criticism there, generally speaking i think conservatives have been happy with a liberal democratic president having people like hillary clinton and panetta running national security. geithner not as popular with conservatives. and eric holder definitely because of fast and furious and other policies not as popular with conservatives. martha: it race raises the questions in all four of those spots, who do you think are some of the names that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state
person who might potentially be leaving is defense secretary leon panetta. leon panetta is someone who might be ready to retire from what has been a long and distinguished career in politics. dates back to 1977 when he was in the house of representatives. possible replacements include his deputy secretary and also michelle flourney, the former undersecretary of defense. and then attorney general eric holder possibly leaving. possible replacements for him include homeland security secretary janet napolitano. a lot of people staying, arne duncan, education secretary, kathleen sebelius, secretary of health and human services, and hilda solis, the labor secretary. thomas? >> a moving chess board, for sure. talk about the west wing and the talk going on there about the conciliatory tone that john boehner tried to strike in his press conference yesterday. seems he has open arms to work with the president now. >> reporter: he has a conciliatory tone. president obama had a conciliatory tone in the speech that he gave, his victory speech he gave the other night. i think that lawmakers on the hi
of high profile secretaries, including hillary clinton, tg, tim geithner, leon panetta. they're all expected to leave sometime in the next few months, possibly, even before the end of the year. secretary of state hillary clinton repeatedly said she's on her way out. >> i want to then take some time to get reconnected to, you know, the stuff that makes life worth living. you know, family, friends, the sort of activities that i own joy. >> of course, this one-time rival to barack obama may be replaced by another former presidential candidate john kerry. he, of course, is chairman of the senate foreign relations committee. another candidate the president's national security adviser tom domilan and u.s. am bass kor susan rice who may some controversial to republicans because she was the obama's representative who gave the initial incorrect intelligence information about benghazi attack. treasury, the top candidate to replace geithner is jack lew who has served as the president's budget director. the president may decide to keep lew where he is and might look elsewhere. a bunch of names
always been rock solid position. someone is a pointed and they are there. we saw with director panetta and before that, director tenet was there for two administrations. this is very unusual situation. i am one of those who is expressing caution at this stage. >>trace: you look back on his career and it was distinguished to say the least talking about the c.i.a. director sworn in september of 2007, a four-star general and served 37 years in the army and he was the commander who oversaw the coalition of forces in iraq from 2007 to 2008. is this sudden? some will say there will be a change of guard because the president won re-election but this seems to be, and the reasons we are getting have not been confirmed, but this seems to be very sudden. >>caller: it is. there is a changing of the guard as you pointed out after the first term and those things are expected but what you don't normally get is an unexpected surprise, someone leaving the post particularly a senior position like this. general petraeus is exemplary career coming in from the military culture, an interesting situation in
, even secretary panetta recently gave a speech, and according to press accounts officials at dod have suggested that iran has been behind a number of cyber attacks in the middle east in recent months. so i think with that in mind, you see an international response of countries and organizations like nato, the u.n., former soviet bloc countries, there's a group called the shanghai group from china, all trying to struggle a bit with how to think about how to use cyber weapons and how to use cyber warfare capabilities in the future, and how those ideas, what happens with those ideas when they hit our international legal norms that we can use to over the past number of decades. the u.n. charter, what prompts a defense of a nation state. you see here, and there are lots of examples like this to the u.s. 2010 national security strategy describing particular serious. the russians have also come up with their own statements about when force can be used in cyberspace. you see this in the uk, canada. most major militaries, especially western countries, are articulating strategies about what doe
panetta last week make a very widely broadcasted speech on the subject of cybersecurity and cyberwarfare. accordingly, the subject matter has been in news. he outlined his deep concerns about computer networks that support our military, infrastructure and business networks. mr. leon panetta elaborated on many things and that includes the high-profile attacks, including the alleged russian denial of service attack entering into georgia, the disruptions in estonia and the iranian nuclear centrifuges. there are dozens of thwarted attacks on other infrastructure occurring on an almost daily basis. the sector of devastating utility concern all of us. and it presents legal issues we should be aware of as we advise our clients. we have four highly qualified speakers here today who are going to discuss these issues. starting with elizabeth preston, who is the managing partner at the national canadian law firm. for the past 26 years, she has worked in emergency response, national security, and counterterrorism. either as an executive or in-house counsel and now outside counsel. part of it is 911
. >> secretary panetta? >> i'd have to check that. secretary panetta has been traveling. >> as sort after follow-up, does the president see this in general as an unwelcomed distraction at a time when he's just -- was re-elected and has a bunch of priorities in terms of the fiscal cliff and his cabinet? >> i certainly i think wouldn't call it welcome. obviously the -- as i said to ben, the information about general petraeus came to him as a surprise, and he is very appreciative of general petraeus' remarkable service to his country. the president is focused on the agenda he believes is important for this contry. he has to carry out working with lawmakers here in washington. that includes his number one priority, which is jobs and economic growth. on the issues of the approach we need to take to ensure we have the right economic policy, the right fiscal policy to help the economy grow and help it continue to create jobs. he is also focused on his national security agenda. he has great confidence in the acting c.i.a. director. he has confidence in his military and the secretary of defense and defen
are learning defense secretary leon panetta said the military did not have armed aircraft near libya that could have helped. jennifer griferin joins us live from the pentagon. >> reporter: in just a few minutes the pentagon is finally going to brief reporters with its time line of what happened the night of the benghazi attack from the military's perspective. we have been asking for this time line for eight weeks. we'll be briefed off camera by a senior u.s. defense official. here is what we have been able to piece together on our own. the national command authority began moving assets shortly after 3:47 p.m. eastern when the first calm from the embassy to the state department was made. but none of those military assets were given permission to enter libyan air space. panetta said none of those military assets would have been in a position to help. they would not have been there in time. general carter ham was visiting washington and in the pentagon on 9/11 and went to the ops center and did all that was within his power to authorize. ham ordered a rescue unit to deploy from croatia on a modifi
have this administration. you have leon panetta the investigation was going on leaders of the congress should have known about it. look at the entire situation, you ask yourself this question, what is at play here? did general petraeus admit to bad act? yes his resignation was accepted. >> i've been involved in counter intelligence operations in the past. there has been some question over, f.b.i. got involved, the start of this i think if you look at it, i think it's quite plausible. jill kelly has a bureau field agent. apparently the bureau field act had a thing for jill kelly. what does he do? he is a friend and pushes this thing inside the bureau to get it investigated. that is kind of the way i would go, you have to have a network in there. if it had been anybody and been no relationship this may no never have kicked off. >> sean: what about broadwell saying petraeus knew go b 'benghazi but that they were holding lynnian militia that may have precipitated this. the president was not asked by that a biased news media in this country and to lead up to to this election about, were the
that president obamma was meeting with secretary panetta and the joint chiefs chairman in a pre-scheduled meeting and they were told that the compound was under attack. according to the white house, the president said, do what you need to do to save the americans. >> sean: that's what he said. but where was he? when did he know? who said to stand down to the cia annex a mile away. these to me, seem basic. we are watching this in real time. doesn't it seem like the president ought to have known that? >> i don't have the answers you are looking for. >> sean: i am want grilling you. >> i think a lot of -- there is a lot we don't know about -- some of the things you asserted, the cia denies to be true. which is not to take away from jennifer griffin's great reporting. but the cia said there was no stand-down order. there is a lot we don't know. there have been more and more tick tocks provided, minute-by-minute accounts from the pentagon and the cia and the state department. and at some point, there needs to be a reckoning because they don't always add up? look. i think you are one of the guy who is
or leon panetta or even barack obama. these are tectonic plates that are moving in the middle east. and the idea that who the president decides to appoint as secretary of state is going to make a material difference in these things, no. >> does anyone have, do you think, does anyone have any real sense of where egypt might go in all of this? >> i think egypt, look, it's quarter to a third of the arab world. cairo is one of the historical centers of the arab world. we don't have a good reading on where these guys are going, the muslim brotherhood. i'm not sure they necessarily do. we don't know how much to take literally what they say and write. they've got their internal politics, the party, the government. there's issues between them and other forces in egypt. they came into government fairly narrowly. but they're clearly trying to deepen their base. so everyone's watching really closely what they're doing with the rewriting of egypt's constitution, how these people want to consolidate power. what they say in the middle east, it's one thing to win an election. that's the easy part
to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration tlaks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. host: "the wall street journal" says this -- margaret talev, who replaces let's start with hillary clinton? guest: it is a great question. i think the conventional wisdom is right in that there are two candidates that are being look

of defense, do you see leon panetta staying? do we need a change? what do you think? >> well i think that's december national security team and it has been, and i would love to see them stay but i think we all know it is probably not in the cards. that secretary of state and secretary of defense at some point are going to depart. i certainly hope they keep general petraeus on board as a director. jamie: i know you worked closely with him. he has been there the shortest time. thank you so much, general. always good to see you. it is pretty frightening stuff. >> good to see you, jamie. jamie: take care. jon: a lot of threats out there. then there is this here at home. in the wake of superstorm sandy a number about health threats remain. keeping your water clean. the threat of carbon monoxide poisoning. serious problems. what storm victims need to know right now. >> i am very stressed out. i don't know what time, i don't know what day it is, what time it is, trying to feed my daughter. have no access to the outside world. i have no access to the computer, the tv. i don't know what's going on
. the top u.s. commander in afghanistan, john allen. the defense secretary leon panetta says the pentagon has launched an internal investigation into thousands of quote, inappropriate communications between general allen right there on the screen and that woman in yellow, kelly. chief intelligence correspondent catherine herridge live in washington. you almost need like one of those boards to put all the pictures up, catherine. >> reporter: you do rick. beyond the issue of failing to notify congress about the fbi investigation the democratic chair of the senate intelligence committee is threatening to subpoena a report summarizing director petraeus's trip to libya when he personally looked into the fwauz gauze attack. he personally interviewed cia staff on the ground in libya including the station chief and the report may be only in unfinish draft form. the departure was sudden and unexpected even by the director. so far virtually every known investigative thread in the case now leads back to jill kelly, a woman described as an unpaid social liaison for the military in tampa, florida. thi

:32 p.m., that secretary of defense leon panetta and general martin dempsey were first told of the attack. at 2:53 a.m., some phi hours late -- five hours later, orders were formalized to allow special ops to deploy to benghazi, but as we know for ambassador chris stevens and three other patriots, it was too little, and it was hours too late. the ceo of concerned veterans for america, sir, welcome and thank you first to your service of to this country on veterans day. >> thank you. shannon: how worried should we be? is it normal or not normal that you have a mission under attack, an ambassador personally imperilled, and the defense secretary isn't noted, the joint chief staff not notified for fearly an hour? -- nearly an hour many. >> that is something that should trigger at the very highest levels a series of things to happen. it's not as though the pentagon didn't know about this for 50 minutes. reports have shown that the commander, general hamm, was at the pentagon that day, ordered an aerial drone -- unarmed, maybe they didn't have armed assets available -- but he's loo
questions. there will be people in the intel committee that will not be able to ask secretary panetta, general ha*pl and others about the -- general hamm and others about the d.o.d. piece. the best thing for the senate to do, i think, is to have a bipartisan select committee where you combine the resources of all three of the committees who have jurisdiction over different pieces and create a professional approach to solving the problem. it will be run by our democratic colleagues because they're in charge of the body. it should be. there have been times in the past, iran-contra and other examples of where committees combine their resources to make sure that they full lip understand what was being said. if you stovepipe this and one committee goes one way and the other committee goes another way we're not going to get the complete picture of what happened in benghazi. that's what we're asking, is that the majority leader and minority leader create a select committee of the three kw-ts that have primary -- committees that have primary jurisdiction over each moving part so we can get to
